Whether you want to admit it or not, a good set of Polaris RZR rock sliders are key to protecting against damage. Without ’em bending the lower edges of our side-by-side while navigating a tight or technical trail is absolutely in the cards – no matter how good your driving skills. This is when a little bit of extra armor comes in handy.
If your UTV spends any serious time in the sand, you’re going to need a set of UTV sand tires to get the most out of it. Sand tires are more specialized than most other types of off-road tires, typically featuring tall, vertical “paddles” on the back tires to help your UTV’s power delivery in the loose stuff, and longitudinal ribs on the front to help transmit steering input. Where mud-terrain and all-terrain UTV tires have treads that suit a range of different terrain types, UTV sand tires are really only suitable for one thing – sand.
Seat offers the space of a bench seat with the support of a bucket
Aftermarket UTV seats are big business and the folks at Pro Armor added another option with the new LE Suspension Bench Seat, which works with the existing seat base in four-seat Polaris RZR models.
Pro Armor, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, has issued a recall notice for its doors that fit 2010-2014 Polaris RZR 800 and 900 models.
According to the recall notice, the latch pin can disengage from the latch and allow the door to open while the vehicle is moving, posing a risk of ejection of an unrestrained rider and impact or laceration hazards.
Polaris has beefed up its ATV and UTV accessories division with the purchase of LSI Products Inc. and Armor Holdings, LLC (Pro Armor). These companies design, develop, manufacture, source, sell and distribute accessories for performance Side-by-Side vehicles and ATV markets under the Pro Armor brand. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Anybody who’s ridden Side-by-Sides long enough, hard enough and over rough enough terrain has longed for a more comfortable place for their posterior. Pro Armor may have the answer with its new suspension seats.
“These suspension seats are designed to give a driver and passenger the most comfort and performance possible,” Pro Armor says in a release. “Using only the highest quality materials and with decades of experience in our sewing and seat department we are sure that once you take a ride in one you will agree it is the best seat in the house.”
Anybody who sits in front of a computer all day feels a little burned out now and again. The folks at Pro Armor may have found the best cure ever for office burnout – burnouts in the office!
Check out Pro Armor’s boss as he takes his Polaris RZR XP 1000 into the Pro Armor offices and kills all the tires.
Bruce and Tommy Scranton of the Pro Armor/Wildcat Race Team competed in Round 1 of Monster Jam in front of a 60,000 fans at QualComm Stadium in San Diego, Calif.
The Pro Armor-equipped Arctic Cat Wildcat is equipped with a Speedwerx clutch, Yoshimura exhaust, GBC tires and Douglas Sector wheels.
Tommy Scranton started in seventh in the first race. He passed most of the competition in the first two laps and on lap three he moved into first place which he held until the finish line! In the second race Scranton started on the front row and took the holeshot. He proceeded to check out in the second race with a dominating win in his Pro Armor prepped WildCat.
Though we didn’t see Pro Armor in our travels at the Indianapolis Dealer Expo, that doesn’t mean the ATV and UTV aftermarket company has been sitting idly by.
